Police questioning an Iola man about an escaped local fugitive culminates in the man’s arrest for threatening a public servant by text message.
The arrest report from the Brazos County Sheriff Office says they began looking for escaped inmate, Cody Rowley, in Iola on February 16th. They responded to a vehicle of interest in a parking lot, across from the the High School on FM 39. Officers gave the man, 21 year old Clayton Sisco, their number, and had conversations with him by phone and text, asking for Crowley to turn himself in.
The next day, February 17th, Rowley was re-arrested in North Zulch. Later that day, Sisco called twice, then sent a text from the same phone number, with threatening language indicating he wanted to assault the officers. February 18th, officers called him to discuss the missed calls and text, he said he never sent it. Eventually, he told the officers “I did not threaten you,” and hung up.
Officers arrested Sisco three days later, on February 21st, and charged him with Obstruction or Retaliation. He was released the next day after posting an $8,000 bond.
